It is part of my setup for a Gunblade Fighter Main / Gunner Sub build. With the weapon not crafted or up to +35 yet, it is very strong. I looked into it to see why people were saying Gunblades are bad. Instead of joining the bandwagon, I actually found something that I have grown to love and have configured to work pretty damn well. I have my units crafted, I have my Rng mag stat'd (rng mad to offset the advantage that melee has inherently on Gunblades, usually about 100 or so higher than rng), and my rings set. All I need now is the weapon crafted. Instead of paying around 100 mil to have someone make it for me, I figured it would be better to dig into augmenting myself and learn to get good at it with the help of someone experienced and willing to help me learn through getting this item made.
So, basically, that is it. I love the way GBs work and found a good balance point to spike damage in balance. Having been running on a decked out Bow Braver a while and being able to say that the GB build I configured can compete with that makes me feel pretty confident in the build (if you know how nutty bow Bravers can get damage output wise).
Edit: Super cool you rock the Pinkal emblem. I was an avid Pinkal through the Dreamcast days to the death of Blue Burst, and even some in Schthack servers. Just wanted to note that I appreciate that Been an on and off player all through that time period.
